Ask a question about this product

In 1937 the inauguration of an Imperial Airways C-Class flying boat service brought Dubai into the aviation era. From the foundations of 1937 to the modernity of 2007, the 70th anniversary of civil aviation in Dubai is a milestone captured in a book for the first time. With colorful insight from many who have contributed to the vision of the Maktoum family, and archival material from around the world, Flight into the future builds into a blueprint of how the emirate has emerged as one of the world’s aviation hubs.

In 1937, the tiny sheikhdom of Dubai on the Arabian Peninsula joined the aviation era. The inauguration of an Imperial Airways C-class flying boat service brought the prospect of a new era for the town and its people.

It is a sign of the global importance of the Arabian Route that, in addition to commercial terms for Dubai, the likes of Hollywood actors Bela Lugosi and Errol Flynn, and 40s sports stars Fred Perry and Donald Bradman stopped in the sheikhdom en route to the other side of the world. Dubai was now on the map.
